Etsy Inspired Challenge #124

Welcome to Etsy Inspired Challenge! Our Shop: Too Cute Kawaii (Kawaii means "cute" in Japanese). If you look through the shop Too Cute Kawaii,  you can see why the name is totally fitting! My inspiration came from this item.
With the doily and cupcakes...this is what I came up with. It was so much fun to play with the cupcake stamps. I colored it lightly with copics, and then added the ribbons, doily...and the SRM Sticker!

thanks a bunch (1)
I colored the cherries with copics and added Glossy Accent. The leaf was paper-pieced with Bo Bunny paper. The swirley pattern at the left bottom corner is from the pattern paper. So no extra work there.

 For the 2nd card, I colored the image with Prisma color pencils. I paper pieced the holes and added faux stitching around  the Label 1.
just for you (1)
Do you love that pink heart button? A great find in my local sewing store. All three cards sentiments are from the SRM Stickers.

These are fabulous, Virginia! I love the way you stamped right on the doily on the delicious cupcake card. The cherry cards are all fabulous. I love cherries!! The glitter on the first one is awesome and I love the bright colour scheme on the second. Great cards!

Vicky said...

Those cupcakes are so cute and yummy! Can I have one?! I also like the glossy accent detail on the cherries of the second card. It makes them look like real. The velvet ribbon on the background and the button "O" on the third are great ideas! Your attention to detail always fascinates me and that is what makes your cards so special! There is always something different to look at! TFS!
